A special message to customers of The First National Bank of Suffield, from PeoplesBank

On July 17, PeoplesBank announced our intention to acquire The First National Bank of Suffield. While the transaction is not expected to be final until late ’18 or early ’19, we wanted to assure all of the customers of FNBS that they will not see significant changes to their existing accounts and relationships, apart from having access to more branches and ATMs within the PeoplesBank network.

PeoplesBank Headquarters in Holyoke, MA.

PeoplesBank (not to be confused with the larger People’s United, based in CT) is a local, mutual, community bank, headquartered just up Rt. 91 in Holyoke (MA), offering personal customer service and a genuine commitment to the communities we serve.

It is our hope and our plan to keep all of the existing FNBS branches, and all of the existing branch staff at all FNBS branch locations. Apart from a different sign out front (“First Suffield Bank, a division of PeoplesBank”), and perhaps a different looking bank statement, we hope that you notice only positive changes in your relationship with us, and that you come to view us as still being your local community-focused bank.

You can read more about the proposed transaction by clicking on the links below. You can also read more about who we are and our commitment to our communities below.

If you have any questions we can answer, let us know by email.
